Air Potato vine

Dioscorea bulbifera


Invasive, non-native vine has become a weed in Florida. Reaches up to 70 feet long! (Other photos included show it reaching the top of a very large oak tree). Leaves approx 6x10 inches. Produces potato-like "fruits". Can create "curtain" of vines, covering everything.
